In Canadian first, Edmonton police charge Freeman on the Land with ‘paper terrorism’ in speeding ticket dispute

EDMONTON — Paper terrorists will no longer be tolerated.

In a precedent-setting move against a self-proclaimed Freeman on the Land, a 45-year-old man has been charged with intimidation of a justice system participant by filing a deluge of documents in court.

The charges against Allen Boisjoli of Vegreville stem from a speeding ticket issued by a community peace officer outside Edmonton in May 2015.

Boisjoli filmed the incident, posted to YouTube, and then launched a campaign of legal filings against the officer. He attempted to file a lien against the officer in Edmonton courts, claiming that the officer was liable for $225,000 for detaining him and issuing the ticket.

Edmonton Det. Rae Gerrard said Tuesday the “paper terrorism” tactics allegedly used by Boisjoli are typical of the Freeman on the Land.

“They use a plethora of documents, which really mean absolutely nothing,” Gerrard said. “ They’re just cutting and pasting from all over the Internet, from all over the world. They put them together in hundreds and hundreds of pages of documents and flood the courts with this, just in an effort to overwhelm the courts and confuse people.”
